Capitalism and Schizophrenia (French: Capitalisme et Schizophrénie) is a two-volume theoretical work by the French authors Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari, respectively a philosopher and a psychoanalyst. Its volumes, published eight years apart, are Anti-Oedipus (1972, trans. 1977) and A Thousand Plateaus (1980, trans. 1987). Deleuze's translator Brian Massumi observes that the books differ drastically in tone, content, and composition.[1]
